Ingredients

  • 1 ½ c quick oats
  • ¾ c white whole wheat flour
  • 2 T oil
  • ¼ c butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ T cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ c pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Icing Drizzle

  • ½ c powdered sugar
  • 1 -2 tsp whole milk
  • ¼ tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk butter, egg and vanilla. Stir in maple and oil.
  • In another bowl, mix oats, flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon.
  • Add dry ingredients into wet and mix to combine.
  • Spoon onto parchment lined baking sheet and gently press them as they will not spread much at all. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • For best results, add drizzle when cookies are cool. Whisk ingredients together and add to a small plastic bag. Cut small slit and then drizzle each cookie.

Notes

  • If you don't want a super sugary icing, I have used plain Greek yogurt, maple syrup and a little bit of milk to thin it out. Drizzle on top just as you would the regular icing. For this version, I typically don't ice until serving or I just store them in the fridge.
  • Do not over bake these. Trust me! It is better to take them out too early than too late. They will be super dry and nobody wants that!
  • Feel free to add in raisins, nuts, chocolate chips or any other delicious add ins! This breakfast cookies recipe has a lot of options to switch it up and add in plenty of extra goodness!
